MAC Viva Glam Nicki

The latest Viva Glam offering from MAC is that of Nicki and Ricky. Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin. Nicki has this gorgeous pinky corally lipstick, and Ricky a lip conditioner.  As with all Viva Glam products, 100% of sales go to the AIDS foundation charity.

The new items are due to launch online this Friday in the UK, however I was sent a code by MAC for a pre-sale. I absolutely knew I would want this, so I ordered it straight away.

Nicki Minaj has designed a lipstick for MAC before, Pink Friday, which is very different from her Viva Glam Shade. Pink Friday is a very cool toned baby pink, while Viva Glam Nicki is a lot warmer, with yellow tones. It’s also very different from the Viva Glam Gaga, the last pink in the Viva Glam range.

 It is almost coral in colour – I want to call it melon, even though I’ve never seen a melon that colour… do you know what I mean!? If you have seen the Vivienne Westwood perfume, Cheeky Alice, its exactly the same colour as the box!
It is fairly dry, but not matt. This definitely helps it to last on the lips – it’s incredibly long lasting – I wore it out on Saturday night and where I would have normally reapplied my lipstick 3 times, I only needed to do it once in the same space of time.
It is very bright, but I love it. I think I will love it even more once I am tanned (at least, I hope I get a tan this year!) 
What do you think? Do you like it?
It’s limited edition, only on sale for the next year, so I may buy another!

    Oooo very pretty shade! I never brought Pink Friday nor Viva Glam Gaga, as they were too "Barbie Pink" for my tanned complexion (otherwise I would have looked like Snooki from Jersey Shore!) But I am definitely going to pick this one up! Great Post! x

    I've literally just pained my nails with Essie Bachelorette Bash and was yearning for a lipstick in a similar shade and Viva Glam Nicki is exactly what I was hoping for! It's such a beautiful colour for summer and a great colour for you too!
